GruupMeet Debuts Industry’s First Automated Mobile Flight Manifest
Displays and Tracks Group Arrival and Departure Flights
DALLAS, TEXAS (June 3, 2016) – Collaborative on-site meetings execution, 2-way text messaging and enhanced participat engagement software provider, GruupMeet, released the industry’s first real-time mobile flight manifest engine with its hybrid app. The Hybrid app add-on allows airport staff, dispatchers, travel directors (TDs) and transportation staff to access core SaaS features of GruupMeet’s web app from any device.
With evolving strategic objectives, countless apps and access to real-time information, participant expectations and on-site meeting planning challenges are increasingly more demanding to manage.
The Hybrid app integrates with GruupMeet to provide seamless meeting and travel communications. Travel directors (TDs) and airport staff have convenient access to multiple programs, all from one app! There’s no need to download an app for each meeting OR for each client. TDs and staff can search for flights, delegate information/check-in, view real-time flights tracking, baggage claim information, notifications and passenger/VIP notes.
The automated flight manifest feature on the Hybrid app provides staff up-to-moment information literally at their fingertips, available via any mobile device with Internet access 24/7/365. GruupMeet is designed for total convenience, providing access to critical on-site data for exceptional support.
“Based on insights operating over 200 meetings across North America, South America and Australia this year; along with customer feedback, it was clear that the industry needed a mobile solution to access, edit and view flight manifests,” say Russell Wyman, Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer.
Stacie Tillery, Director of Operations for ACCESS Destination Services Texas recently stated that, “The software is absolutely wonderful. We would sometimes spend hours checking flights… The fact that we communicate one message to thousands of people at a click of a button is awesome.”
The products’ intuitive design and features enable staff to easily see program updates and notifications, guest’s notes, transfer pick-up times and to access documents and files that are shared. In addition to viewing attendee information, flight tracking, baggage information and check in status, meeting planners can schedule automated messages via SMS and/or email and interact and assist guests within the app and via 2-way texting. Unlike two-way radios, the software keep a record of all dialog and history for accountability.
